Guess the IPCC report really was sort of a bust.

Dave reports that a big swath of the pundocracy says global warming sucks, but there’s nothing we can do about it. Oh well.

Over in Cleveland, a bunch of meteorologists aren’t even sure it sucks. They say it’s just not that big of a deal.

Says one:

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

We have maybe 100 years of data on a rock that’s 6 billion years old … Mother Nature tends to even herself out, and the fact is, the Earth is cyclical.


Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

Another can’t resist a potshot at Al Gore:

“Where’s Al Gore now?” [one meteorologist] joked with the audience, referring to the former vice president and his documentary film An Inconvenient Truth, which argues the case for global warming. “You can bet he’s not in New York, where they’ve got nearly 12 feet of snow right now.”

Guess it’s time for Gore to cobble together a new slide for his slideshow, one about how global warming has been proven a load of hooey because it snowed in New York in February.
